Simple Bundt cake with the flavors of orange juice and champagne.
Mimosa Bundt Cake
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
This month for Bundt Bakers, the cake theme is cocktails. I knew right away that I wanted to make a Mimosa Bundt cake, because firstly, it reminds me of Mother’s Day which is coming up soon.
Second, I knew it was something I could do after spotting some champagne extract at the market, although I hadn’t bought it at first because I didn’t have any plan for it.
As a food blogger, I have bought way too many ingredients on contingency that take too long to get around to, so I decided to hold off until the moment presented itself instead. And wouldn’t you know it, as soon as I decided to make this, I went to grab that bottle and they were sold out.
But thankfully, that market has a second location and I drove all the way across town to grab it, and fortunately they still had some. And what I got was the champagne flavoring from The Baker’s Kitchen and you can also buy that online if you want the same exact thing I used, and I do recommend it. I did see another flavor called sparkling wine which is for candy, which possibly could be used, but it is more concentrated so you would have to figure the amount of that out on your own.
I do use a cake mix this time, since as a Baker I can sometimes be on the lazy side and like things easy and quick. The mix I use is white but the color won’t be white inside but a soft citrus color like pound cake. The flavor of the cake is delicate of orange and champagne, without any of the booze so it is great for kids. I think it would be quite lovely with a scoop of ice cream, or maybe topped with fresh raspberries.
Join me tomorrow for #FishFridayFoodies as we post our favorite recipes for fish and seafood prepared on a sheet pan. For my offering I am making a Thai Lava Shrimp with will be spicy shrimp and vegetables with a simple sauce that can be served with steamed rice. Think of it as a stir-fry done in the oven. I hope you like it!

A gorgeous cake and the perfect flavor profile Sue. I would be pleased as punch to be presented this on Mom’s day.
What a wonderful combo: orange juice and champagne!!! I have to try it!! Thank you for your participation!!! XOXO
Sue, this cake is just way too perfect! I mean, really, it’s just gorgeous. Those sugar coated petals are way too tempting!
A mimosa is certainly the perfect drink for a brunch, and especially one on Mother’s Day. Such a beautiful cake, especially with the dusting of powdered sugar. I think I am going to have to leave this recipe in my kitchen, and hope that my youngest daughter sees it and makes it for me on Mother’s Day.
